I got the pleasure in meeting and spending time with these lovely people. They have such kind souls and are so passionate about their music. Their shows are deep with intensity and the audience can feel the sounds they make.
This album is a collection of demos and side Bs from their much earlier work and is much more lo-fi then their newer releases. the instruments are very minimal and beautiful. this is really a beautiful and simple album, i really cherish the songs on here. little bird is one of my favorite songs but they are all really very lovely.

such a fun band from san jose california! they bring the dance to the show or wherever they go! They are living in the 1990's with their sloppy catchy noisy rocky sounds. they sing cute little love songs that make you wanna hug the person next to you!
this band consists of the singer from PRE, Akiko and this other cool dood named Simon. its a lot more thrash and distorted then PRE and makes you want to head bang. Akiko drums and vocals are too good to be true.
Eric's Trip is one of the greater bands from the nineties. This album has a lot of different sounds, all pretty great. You can definitely feel the nineties vibes. Phil Elverum has gotten a lot of his influence from this band. Love Tara has rock songs that are great, and mellow songs that are beautiful, you'll see.
very cute simple acoustic melodies. Adams voice reminds me of tim buckley, which is a very nice voice. These songs have funny, corky stories that make you want to listen to the whole song, and its really not too hard to do with the melodies being so pretty pretty.

this album has some pretty weird and experimental shit. experimental folk i think would best describe the genre, if i had to pick, but i dont even really know if its that. it is certainly experimental. "strange yet awesome and very enjoyable"
last.fm explains it better:
"Amps For Christ (AFC) is about the combinations of many styles of music and sound from hardcore and noise to traditional musics (Folkcore and Musnik). The subjects go from war and run-away corporate capitalism to peace and the love and mercy of God. The warp in the harmonic scale, experimentation with waveforms and “beat-tones” are matters of great intrigue."
"A tradition of American culture that I agreed with, even felt inspired by. This is my attempt at making American music - music that describes and remembers and criticizes and embraces and expresses and illustrates and ornaments and digests and shits out what it means to be American."
alden penner is genius. ex-unicorns member, he continues to make amazing music, which is very hard to find, but quite worth the search. Clues is his newest project, but this is stuff from radio recordings and jam practices. needless to say, its real good.
"As mountainous as ever, with foot stomps and moans and sloppy strums, but now he's ready to kick it up with xylophone, electric guitar and (correct me if im wrong) singing saw as well. Two great songs."
this is where i share my favorite albums of music i think people should be exposed to. i also post books, videos, films or whatever. if a link is down, let me know in the shoutbox or in a comment. also, it would be nice, if you've enjoyed some of my posts, to leave a comment or two. if nobody leaves anything, i don't know what people are digging or if anybody comes to this blog at all.
if you like any of the albums, you should buy them!
